For the Property Manager –
You make tenants happy with their decision to lease in your building and in their day to day professional lives, why add the job of carpet cleaning? Or upholstery cleaning?
Let us do the dirty work and add to your statue of “the world’s greatest property manager” by cleaning entryway and hallway carpet. We do this regularly. It isn’t a hassle for us to show up on time every time to do the cleaning.
There aren’t shortcuts to perfect appearance management or the right trained technical staff; we know this and appreciate every training class and certification.
Managing the assets of a building is no small matter and not for the faint hearted. When dollars are in the equation and every purchase that is made is scrutinized, the seriousness of the position is just that, serious.
Carpet, upholstery and fabric panels are not purchased at the local Dollar Store. They are costly and require research and budgetary consideration. Because of this asset purchase, we know you usually work at extending the life cycle of these textiles for as long as possible, before making the serious decision to replace.
We understand the importance of keeping up the cleaning with a scheduled program when talking about textile life cycle, it’s the number one reason why carpet lasts longer.
Replacing carpet causes all sorts of employee angst, office staff working elsewhere, moving office furniture, changing electrical and internet connections, downtime for client and visitor visits and the plain ole feeling of “please don’t touch my personal space”.
When building entrances and hallways are involved, that’s a whole boatload of building occupants to account for and to consider their unhappiness.
So before you replace the textiles in your office building, take a look at their current life cycle, then check out the cost of moving people here and there and what your budget can manage this year.
You may find your ROI will be higher by keeping the carpet cleaned on a regular scheduled program. Less mess, less disruption and easier to work the security process.
And as a Property Asset Manager, that’s the best way to discuss the financials at the next building owners meeting. Higher ROI and happier building tenants that plan to stay and re-sign their lease.
